Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

ALL the pictures in the Halcyon Days of Buses (Ian Allan; £5.95) were taken from the Charles F. Klapper collection of the Omnibus Society. The book, by J. F. Parke and A. J. Francis, portrays something of the bus scene during the three decades Starting in 1930 when public transport, after its rapid growth period, was still an expanding industry.

The late Charles Klapper, a Cockney and a founder member of the Omnibus Society, edited Modern Transport for some years; that journal turned to consultancy. His extensive collection of photographs is drawn upon to provide a lively pictorial commentary — including shots of brochures and tickets — for the authors' 14 chapters, commencing with "Salad Days for London Transport" but consists almost entirely of pictures and captions. Ian Allan, Shepperton, Surrey.
